Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT)

In 2010-2011 Kentucky used the Kentucky Core Content Tests (KCCT) to assess students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 through 12 in reading, social studies, science, writing, and math. The Elementary School results displayed on GreatSchools profiles are for grades 3 through 5 combined for each subject. Middle School results are for grades 6 though 8 combined, and High School results are for grades 10 though 12 combined. The KCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kentucky. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

    DRY RIDGE ELEMENTARY IS A GREAT SCHOOL. I LIVE IN WILLIAMSTOWN AND STRONGLY PREFER THIS SCHOOL TO ANY OTHER IN OUR DISTRICT. THEY HAVE A GREAT STAFF GREAT PROGRAMS AND REWARDS AND THEY CHALLENGE MY KIDS WHO ARE TOP OF THEIR CLASS EVERYDAY. I BELIEVE SCHOOL IS VERY IMPORTANT AND UNLESS MY KIDS HAVE A SEVERE SICKNESS I MAKE SURE THEY ARE THERE EVERYDAY. I FEEL COMFORTABLE TALKING TO ALL OF MY KIDS TEACHERS AND ANY TIME THERE HAS BEEN A CONCERN ABOUT SOMETHING THE TEACHERS ALWAYS LISTEN TO WHAT I HAVE TO SAY AND MAKE THINGS BETTER. THANKS DRY RIDGE ELEMENTARY FOR DOING A WONDERFUL JOB!

    There are a lot of great teachers but I think they are very rude to the parents ad like to gossip a little to much about other people. I think they need to focus more on the kids and less an the gossip!

    After one year of having my children in this school we moved to a better school system. Don't allow your children to go to this horrible poorly planed school.
